This is one of those movies that are impossible to dislike. Carey Grant returned to king and country to make this seriocomic Depression romance that is sort of like "Brewster's Millions" in reverse, but with more serious overtones. Grant is fine, as always, and so is his all-British supporting cast. There are some nice romantic touches, and while there is little in the way of the broad comedy Grant would become famous for, there are quiet laughs. And there is one boisterous exception in a knockdown brawl that comes close to being slapstick. All in all, a sweet time-passer with a warm and fuzzy conclusion. FOOTNOTE: "Brewster's Millions" 1921, 1935, 1945 and 1985, are all remakes of the original "Brewster's Millions," a 1914 silent. Did I hear somebody say there's nothing new under the sun? CORRECTION! The cast members aren't all Brits. Mary Brian (Frances Clayton) was a American actor who appeared in films like "Charlie Chan in Paris" and "The Man on the Flying Trapeze." Sorry about that. I blame it on not enough coffee.
